Although we are already in June, the Western Galilee Now organization is proud to invite the public to its fifth annual Spring Festival next weekend, June 8 to 10. Visitors are invited to make their way to the Galilee for three days of beautiful scenery, tasty cuisine, cooking workshops, wine tasting at local wineries, meetings with local artists at their galleries, and musical performances.

Among the many activities that will take place during the festival, there will be a unique collaboration between the Madrigal Ensemble and tour guides Ayelet Bar-Meir and Amnon Gofer that will be called “Concertiyul.” The guides will lead visitors on a journey through the ancient alleyways of Peki’in, culminating with a concert conducted by Itai Berkowitz in the village churchyard. The “Concertiyul” will begin at 12 noon on Saturday, June 10, with the first tour setting out at 12:30 p.m. with Gofer, attending the concert at 2 p.m.
